At around 1840hrs on Wednesday 20 February a woman was walking alone from the direction of Heneage Road. A man is reported to have followed her onto Eleanor Street and asked her for the time. The woman attempted to ignore the man and as she walked away she noticed that he appeared to be inappropriately touching himself. The woman continued to walk away and he rode away in an unknown direction. The man is described as a white male, travelling on a bicycle with no lights. He was aged in his 50s and wearing a jacket that was dark at the bottom and light on the top, dark trousers and a beanie hat on.
On Friday 22 February, shortly before 1900hrs, a woman was walking in the direction of Peaks Lane, Grimsby. When she reached the Hainton public house she was approached by an unknown man. The man appeared to be indecently exposing himself, before he made an attempt to get the woman to come down an alleyway with him. The woman refused and continued to walk towards her home address. The man then cycled away in an unknown direction. He is described as cycling on a black coloured Mountain bike and aged in his late 40s. He was of a stocky build and short in height. He was wearing a tracksuit top, blue jeans and Adidas trainers.
